The Inside-Out Center left grain

National Research Committee

In 2003, thanks to a Soros Justice Senior Fellowship, Inside-Out founder and director Lori Pompa began to share her successful program model with educators around the country. In a few short years, the program has seen an exceptional rate of growth. One class involving 15 inside and 15 outside students has grown into 300+ classes, with over 9,000 students participating in this unique and important learning opportunity. Nearly 310 instructors from 120+ colleges and universities in 37 states and abroad have taken part in a National Instructor Training Institute. And more than half of Inside-Out classes have received print, radio, or television media attention in their local areas, with more than 120 news pieces appearing around the country in the past few years featuring the Inside-Out model.

Now, Inside-Out is poised for even greater growth. Over the next three years, Inside-Out will undertake a thoughtful, state-by-state expansion plan which will allow its model to serve students in all 50 states by 2012. Please check back for updates on Inside-Out’s progress on this major undertaking.

The national replication project will be stewarded by a number of advisors; chief among them are the members of Inside-Out’s National Steering Committee and National Research Committee.
